- No.15 North America's 50 Best Bars 2023
Marked by all the trappings of chic Parisian cafés - think whitewashed brick walls, vintage wooden chairs, a marble bartop, glowing pendant lights and tawny leather banquettes - Bar Pompette is an airy, elegant cocktail space that offers a dose of charming merriment in the heart of Toronto's Little Italy. With a menu featuring classic and modern libations made with French ingredients, some cocktails on-tap, an Old World wine menu that leans into French offerings, plus an in-house ice programme that ensures top-notch quality for every drink, the list is modest but memorable. With the added benefit of a tucked-away back patio punctuated by twinkling string lights, and shareable plates made at sister restaurant Pompette, there is no better place for an afternoon apéritif. Bookmark Sunday evenings for weekly live jazz performances. No reservations.
